Alas, no, the Black-legged Kittiwake appears to have moved on (or died).
I've birded Point Wilson regularly since Mar 22 and not seen it. We do have
hundreds of Rhinoceros Auklets with full breeding plumes and horns, and
some of the Horned and Red-necked Grebes are also in breeding plumage. The
Marbled Murrelets and most of the Common Murres remain in basic plumage.
For most of these, a scope is best. At low tide, there have been 225 Brant
along the Point Hudson waterfront which allow very close approach.

good birding,
